K Club Hotel & Golf Resort
Carton House is a luxury resort set on 1100 acres of private parkland in Kildare. Only 25 minutes from Dublin airport, this hotel is one of Ireland’s greatest national treasures. Steeped in history, Carton House reflects the past when passing through the halls of today.
Carton House has 165 bedrooms in total, with 18 being in the Manor House. The hotel also boasts several restaurants and bars, a spa and wellness centre and two championship golf courses – the O’Meara and the Montgomerie.
At the Carton House Hotel, the rooms in the Garden Wing include a deluxe, balcony and family bedrooms. In the House, you can choose from deluxe, suites and presidential suites. All the rooms are decorated with soft furnishings and mellow and warm colours, each uniquely designed to retain the charm and elegance of the estate’s 18th century history, although with modern amenities.
For those wishing to stay and play golf, this resort is one to choose from. For the non-golfing partners, again this resort offers relaxation for that well-needed getaway.
The Montgomerie Golf Course at Carton House offers an inland links experience. An 18-hole par 72 course designed by Colin Montgomerie himself, gives even the seasoned golfer a test of skill, with cavernous bunkers ensuring this. The vast fairways and impressive greens have hosted many tournaments starting in 2004 with the Irish Amateur Open and being awarded the ‘Best New Design of the Year 2004’ and ‘Best Course’ in 2006.
This course was designed by US Masters Champion, Mark O’Meara. A Parklands par 73 18-hole course, the O’Meara offers a breath-taking backdrop of the Palladian Manor House with a lake and boathouse. Although designed to give golfers a challenge, this course also brings with it the beauty of the surrounding estate and countryside.
